No one is getting close enough to touch her with that massive sword/axe she has, so the armour is more of a confidence statement to me. Nice work.

look, ma! she's asking for an easy-peesy shot through the heart or lungs, and slices through the femoral or axillary artery &/or vein. almost as bad as the gut me here slice down the abdomen, tho' that one might take some extra work to get long enough to kill her...

I so love a lot of your work, but the cheesy armor that isn't always makes me cringe.

Female warriors don't need practical armor; they got boobs of steel!

LMAO!

I think you have wandered into comic book territory...

Don't forget, it happens in MMO's, too.

Probably. Don't MMO much, so I don't have the chops to comment on that, but I have read plenty ' comic books.

It happens amongst men, too. But people don't really focus on the men wearing impractical armor mainly 'cause they tend to look really tough and fierce when they do. With women, they typically look more like prostitutes or those cosplayers at conventions. However, I've seen female warriors wearing pretty damn good armor with decent protection receive more criticism than a shirtless male warrior with all of his vital organs exposed.
At times I really don't think that people, not even you, have problems with the lack of armor, it's really just because they are women, or at least that they look highly sexual. Like if a woman started to look less like a woman, even if she shared the same flaws, do you really think people would say the same thing you said make in May of 2012? In my experience no because I've once seen an alternative to Red Sonja and she shared all of the same flaws as the original. All of the same flaws. Yet, the artist commented, "never mind the gut even though that bleeds like crazy..." when yet the gut on his version is just as badly exposed. The alternative looked more manly, which I believe further proves my point that women only receive the criticism because they are women or that they look women. If they started looking like men, people wouldn't feel the same way. I've seen this twice, too.

I'm not really trying to defend this piece; I typically would only defend the type of female warriors that don't even fall under the same category as 'bikini warriors' because I think it's a bit unfair for them to receive criticism when their male counterparts with even worse armor would get nothing but praises and praises. I find that very offensive.

Oh, I have commented on male armor, but as it usually doesn't include their reproductive organs swinging in the breeze, I usually only point and laugh. Sadly, I know people who do recreation fighting who have gone into melees with armor like that.

I got your point, but to be honest, there is no "real" armor or "cheesy" armor and that because the best armor you can wear must fit to your purpose. For example, is very sad when the powerful crusader in full plate cannot getup fast enough, or cannot swim at all of move over some obstacle etc. No one can argue he still a powerful warrior.
An half naked warrior can do thing and cannot do some thing ... or maybe he can, but he must faces some problem. He can face the crusader, but he must be quick and lethal and he need to rely on his first strike, because he cannot sustain heavy hits (probably he cannot sustain any hit at all!).
Everything can be fine ... or wrong.

Ps Thanks for all the favorite! Very gentle :)
